Michael joins Savitt Bruce & Willey from Jones Day in New York, where he represented clients in a variety of industries, including Fortune 500 companies and financial institutions, in major litigation.

Michael graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School after earning degrees from Seattle University and Fordham University.  In between his study of philosophy and the law, Michael worked at Savitt Bruce & Willey as a legal assistant (and played shortstop on our softball team).  During law school, he returned to the firm as its first summer associate.

Originally from Rochester, New York, Michael discovered the Northwest’s stunning landscape and progressive culture while studying at Seattle U.  Outside of the office, he enjoys swimming, backpacking in the mountains, reading two novels at a time, and wearing his Yankees cap to Mariners games.
